MP welcomes pork deal and will campaign for new markets
EAST RIDING : An MP has welcomed the historic £50 million deal with the Chinese Government to allow British pork exports to China.
Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, believes the deal will be a huge boost for East Yorkshire's pig industry.
Mr Stuart has been campaigning to ensure new markets are secured for East Yorkshire and raised the matter with David Cameron at Prime Minister's Questions earlier this year.
Much of the pork to be exported will be offal and trotters, which tends not to be consumed in the UK.

Mr Stuart said: "With many pig farmers and Cranswick's Preston facility in my constituency, pork exports are an important part of the local economy.
"Earlier this year, I met the British Pork Executive and Cranswick Country Foods to discuss opening up foreign markets such as China.
"I'm delighted we've secured this deal.
"Now, I will be campaigning for the minister to go further and help the industry open up even more markets such as Australia for British pork."
